Race Fairings... Where and how much?

I was looking at GodFather but they charge $100 to ship which is rape. I found a pair on ebay called E-Racing Fairings but i don't know about their quality. I want to spend $500 or less shipped on new, or if you know anyone who is selling used ones let me know. Thanks

Check with hawaii600rr from here. He was selling a set of HotBodies for around that price. You get what you pay for definitely. They are a pain in the ass to get to fit right. If you have a little extra cash, go with Sharkskinz. Everyone talks about the good quality of those. Good luck.

I ordered some race body off a guy on ebay called truckgear. I havn't actually gotten the stuff yet since I just ordered it and I live in Canada. So far he's been awesome and he charges about $420 plus $45 shipping. That's for upper, lower, front fender, tail, and gas cover. When I get them I'll be sure to post if they're good or bad.

from what ive noticed, with race bodywork, you get what you pay for.

Ive seen several lower price makes of race glass get destroyed in a lowside.

The expensive ones hold up much better.

I sell GP composite and shipping a full set is from 80 to 100 dollar range. It is true that you get what you pay for. The GP composites holds up very nicely.

Sharkskins.....................I'll never go with anything less after seeing how they held up.



And ya; 100 for shipping is VERY fair. What were you expecting to pay for shipping anyways?

I sold a complete set of fairings and it only cost me a little over $20 to ship, and the boxes together cost maybe another $20 so I dunno.

And how did you do that? What shipping methods did you use and how big of a box?

Shipped it through my work, they never ask for dimensions just weight. I shipped a stock 636 exhaust pipe the other day and it cost me $7.xx, it weights over 15lbs.

Roo-keep in mind that OEM fairings are smaller peices. The race fairing uppers are 2 peices (upper half, lower half). The tank also has the ram air covers built in and the tail has the side panels built in and it will all likely get you into oversized charges.

good to know. I wonder if anyone here has tried that with the 05 headers and chaning up the California headers witht he 49 state ones. My cali headers are burning my HotBodies plastics so I had to do the exhaust shield tape on the inside of the body work. Still slightly browns the plastics.

Cool I will. I read up on your post about them since you posted the most usefull information about them. I do not plan on using the side covers so I am not worry about a gap there. But hen I put them on I will post up a review. Thanks for all the help.
